Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari, read by Derek Perkins. 
From the author of the multimillion copy best seller Sapiens.
Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus looked to the future. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century explores the present. 
How can we protect ourselves from nuclear war, ecological cataclysms and technological disruptions? What can we do about the epidemic of fake news or the threat of terrorism? What should we teach our children? 
Yuval Noah Harari takes us on a thrilling journey through today’s most urgent issues. The golden thread running through his exhilarating new book is the challenge of maintaining our collective and individual focus in the face of constant and disorienting change. Are we still capable of understanding the world we have created?

Great!

Listened to twice now and will do again in the near future. I am tired of taking a screen shot of the cover and sending to others. I think both Audible and Kindle should think about how one can share such things - yes at a discount. Yuval would surely agree with me - not only for the $ but how that fits in the with world we are now in. Over to you Audible.

He's done it again

A truly insightful, thought-provoking, and meditated tackle at some of life's biggest unknowns.

By far one of the best book series by one of the best authors to date.

Zealots beware!

To me, Sapiens was easily the best book I ever came across, and it marked the beginning of my journey through a lot of scientific books. I couldn't finish Homo Deus, I found it to be too speculative.
Now, the 21 Lessons are easily the best book I listened to in years. There's a lot to learn, not just about the 21st century.
Check it out!

Amazin... Don't be scared of the future

Don't be scared of the future instead invest in your present as Mr Harari suggested in the end, a life changing book

Blown away!

Based on Yuval’s 2 previous books I pre-ordered this audiobook and couldn’t wait to start listening. As I expected it blew me away with the its clarity and Yuval’s outstanding ability to explain in simple language, what in his assessment are the important lessons of history. A must listen.
